All line drawings by Trilochan Chhaya
My older brother and well-known architect Trilochan Chhaya always had an assured hand when it came to drawing and sketching. It is hard to say now whether he became an architect because he could draw very well or that he began to draw very well because he became an architect. I think it is the former.
I have told him frequently to create a series of drawings and paintings. He had been reluctant until recently but in the past few days something seems to have stirred him. The three lovely line drawings above have come in rapid succession. All three are evocative but the first one, which he has titled ‘Conceit’, is particularly striking.
One of these days he needs to mount a big canvas and pour in all that he has locked away for decades. I think he has it in him to create masterpieces unlike me. I just hack it.
